Natural Diet Menus

All healthy diet plans include fat which the body uses  - such as for maintaining healthy skin and hair.

Fat sources from fish or nuts are best, but if you must have a bit of butter or margarine with your meal, be certain to enjoy only a pat of fat.

Details on The Natural Diet Plan - Notes, Tips & Suggestions for Weight Loss & Weight Maintenance


- It's important to eat all three meals per day, including 2-3 snacks. This will help keep blood sugar levels stabilized as well as keep the metabolism fired to burn calories more efficiently.

Be sure to balance the three main meals of the day (don't eat your entire day's worth of calories at one sitting) OR opt to enjoy small meals throughout the day, breaking up your daily recommended calorie intake. One of the keys to weight loss is to keep the metabolism burning at a steady, effective pace and wisely balancing calorie intake throughout the day can help your body achieve maximum weight loss results.

- Be sure to dink adequate fluids daily (generally 8 cups).

- Use light dressings for salads or balsamic vinegar. For sandwiches, try spreading on a little yellow sunshine.

- Substituting honey for sugar is a healthy move; using sugar substitutes might not be an ideal 'natural' selection, but can assist you in losing and managing weight.

- Get your doctor's approval before starting any weight loss or diet plan.

- NEVER EVER NEVER give up on striving to be a healthy weight. With dedication and determination, anything is possible. Part 1: Natural Diet Plan  | Part 2, Natural Diet Plan | Part 3 Natural Diet Plan | Natural Diet Plan, Day 1 Menus | Natural Diet Plan, Day 2-7 Menus
